    [SOLVED] Simple question probably...


    Hi all. I am following a tutorial on GTK and I can't compile a simple hello world program. Getting Started. I am supposed to compile using
    Code:
    gcc base.c -o base `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0`
    . When I do this I get the following output:

    Code:
    Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
    sauce.c:1:21: error: gtk/gtk.h: No such file or directory
    sauce.c: In function ‘main’:
    sauce.c:6: error: ‘GtkWidget’ undeclared (first use in this function)
    sauce.c:6: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
    sauce.c:6: error: for each function it appears in.)
    sauce.c:6: error: ‘window’ undeclared (first use in this function)
    sauce.c:10: error: ‘GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL’ undeclared (first use in this function)
    This means I need to install gtk right? I downloaded the .tar from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/2.12/gtk+-2.12.6.tar.bz2 and I did a
    Code:
    ./configure
    within the directory only to get the output:

    No package 'glib-2.0' found
    No package 'atk' found
    No package 'pango' found
    No package 'cairo' found
    
    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.
    
    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables BASE_DEPENDENCIES_CFLAGS
    and BASE_DEPENDENCIES_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.
    I now ask how to proceed. How do I install these 4 packages?
    I can't find them by typing something like this
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install cairo
    Thanks for your patience. I'm new to the whole ./configure, make, make install thing.

    Yeah, build-essential is installed. I still can't progress any further in this installation.
